Synopsis

As season three of the CBS sitcom The Nanny drew to a close, widowed Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) was stammering out the words "I love you" to Fran Fine (Fran Drescher), a Jewish gal from Queens who for the past several years had been working as the nanny for Maxwell's three children. But as season four commences, Maxwell panics and takes the words back! Sent into an emotional spiral, Fran consults a therapist named Dr. Miller (played by legendary monologist Spalding Gray), who tells her that she should put the kibosh on her insatiable man-chasing -- words that do not sit too well with Fran's mother, Sylvia (Renee Taylor), who is anxious to marry off her daughter post-haste. Despite the cooling off of her relationship with Maxwell, Fran continues to work in the Sheffield town house, enduring the taunts and put-downs of Maxwell's female business partner, C.C. (Laura Lane), who is laboring under the misapprehension that she can get her own lunchhooks into Maxwell. As it turns out, however, the main man in C.C.'s life may very well be her worst enemy -- namely, Maxwell's sarcastic butler, Niles (Daniel Davis). This year's guest star crop includes Seinfeld's Jason Alexander, cast against type as a blind man in the season opener, "A Tart With Heart"; Nora Dunn, who would later join the series' cast as obstetrician Dr. Reynolds, but in the meantime is seen as Mrs. Richardson in "The Bird's Nest"; Donald O'Connor as a millionaire to whom Fran gives dancing lessons (!) in "Frieda Needa Man"; Robert Vaughn as Maxwell's dad and Joan Collins as Maxwell's new mother-in-law in "Me and Mrs. Joan"; Pamela Anderson, introduced as Fran's gold-digging archrival Heather Biblow in "Danny 's Dead and Who's Got the Will?"; and future Daily Show host Jon Stewart as a Jewish doctor whom Fran gets serious about until she learns a startling fact about him in "Kissing Cousins." And, of course, a number of celebrities show up as "themselves": Rosie O'Donnell, Jay Leno, Monty Hall, Donald Trump, and Celine Dion, to name but a few. ~ Hal Erickson
